Hi I have a khaki Campbell she is about 7 months and has been laying for about 2 months. I was her today and suddenly there was this horrible smell, I look down she pooped on me. There was a lot of it, Brown and goopy like dihrea. Is this normal? Plz help thanks

Sounds like a cecal poop which is normal I believe about every 10 poops, but if she continues to have poops like this every time then that would probably mean something is wrong.

I was just really concerned because of the smell. They normally do this when her and my mallard lemon don't get enough mud or rocks

If I feed my ducks too much protein or too many treats they become very efficient fertilizing machines that smell terrible.

Do you feed them tasty treats?

Do your ducks have access to grit? they need grit to help them "chew" their food it's a very important part of their diet. If they have forage time and your ground isn't frozen they are probably getting their own grit.
